Is the piece solid and heavy or is it light and fragile? Does the construction of the furniture match its functionality? A fine piece of furniture should last longer, so avoiding light aluminum frames and selecting solid wood could guarantee an extended lifespan. Small items like poufs and stools should be light enough to be moved around the room without scratching and damaging the floor and walls. Also, keep in mind the most commonly used paths throughout the house and purchase furniture that won’t be in your way.
Furniture must be made of a material that suits the use. Some materials are harder and more durable, like wood and certain upholstered fabrics, and others are more delicate. A lacquered table has a luxurious look but won’t stand up to family dinners over time without a lot of maintenance. In this case, hardwood or laminate is the best option. Something similar happens with fabrics: a faux leather chair is suitable for heavy use and easy to clean, while chenille is always delicate and easier to stain.
Plants are a wonderful way to add depth to a small living room. Lush greenery softens corners and fools the eye into thinking there is more to the room than there really is. Plants are especially effective in corners and beside or behind chairs and sofas. If you can keep the furniture from contrasting, then your room will look just fine. You can always break rules when it comes to decorating small spaces because you don’t have as much area to work with, so it generally is not as noticeable.
